"Had an absolutely brilliant stay. ...paradise comes to mind..."
- Nic Benade and Emma Reeve, Normanton, UK, December 2013
"There is something magical at Forest Edge that cannot be explained in words. The attention to detail, the little cottages,
the fact that you can walk just 100m and you are in the forest. One of our favourite stays on the Garden Route. Sad to leave..."

"Fireflies dancing at the window
Rain, rain and still more rain!
Oh my god, look at the size of the millipede!
Gifts of forest honey
Glasses of fizz on the verandah
Yellowtail, hake and prawns in Knysna
Picnics beside shady forest pools
Orchestra of frogs with front-row seats
Nightjars whirring after dark
Drying ourselves off by a roaring log fire
A shy family of baboons
Thunder and lightning (and still more rain)
Full moon strolls in the misty garden
One, hot, glorious day of sunshine!
Recharging in the hammock
Exceptional Sunday lunch at Totties
Startingly smelly Stinkhorns
Tail-slapping whales at Plettenberg Bay
Eggs fresh from the hen
Dining al fresco by candle light
Green Wood-hoopoes and Paradise Flycatcher
Enchanting place to celebrate turning 40!

- Carla, Dana and Richard Barclay, PE, November 2013
"n Baie lekker honeymoon. Die huisie is goed toegerus, kaggel en al. Die diens is uitmuntend. Ons het n paar goed beleef.
Die stap roete is nie so maklik nie. Besoekers moet die Prince Alfred Pas by Uniondale vermy want dis gevaarlik. Ons sal definitief weer kom vakansie hou!"
- Lina en Frans Roodt, Vereeniging, November 2013
"Absolutely stunning, thank you so much for such an amazing stay. I'm sure we'll be back : ) A magical stay in one of your cosy and lovely cottages.
I spent quite a lot of time browsing the internet looking for a special place... Forest Edge was the right choice and you know what? It was above all expectations!
Everything's perfect. A home away from home. Opening up the curtains in the morning on your beautiful gardens was a delight every time. Sitting on the deck,
listening to the birds, the wind in the forest... pure bliss! We loved the bath, the fire light, the comfy bed, the dvd selection, the hammock, the outside shower (special mention!)
and of course the quietness and peacefulness... Thanks for the warm welcome and friendliness, and recommendations: Totties is definitely the best kept secret restaurant of the
Garden Route - we loved it, like travelling back in time... magical. The circle forest walk will remain a beautiful memory for a very long time.
So impressive to be alone in the middle of such a dense, powerful and beautiful vegetation. We will recommend this piece of heaven to our friends and
hope to be back before long."
- Christele Nicoli, London, UK, November 2013
"An awesome, relaxing stay. It rained the whole time we were here and I loved it! It made the place seem magical. Our hostess charmed us like
a woodland sprite. I felt close to nature, at peace and away from the stress of the big city. Gordon loved the chickens, veggie patch, donkeys, pond, frogs and food!
Private cottages offering the ideal romantic getaway for the stressed city dweller who appreciates the natural surrounds."
- Toni Olivier and Gordon Billing, Johannesburg, November 2013

verblyf gerieflik te maak. En die wonderlike buite-stort! Ons kom weer!"
- Dr Anthony and Ronel Constandius, Durbanville, November 2013
"The most amazing experience. I am going to recommend it to everyone I know and those I don't! What a wonderful place. We really enjoyed our stay and wish it could be longer.
There is so much more we'd like to learn from you (re green living). Thanks for the little touches in the cottage."

- Bas Brand and Kim Hermes, The Hague, Netherlands, November 2013
"We feel privileged to have had the chance to live, for this brief time, in your hamlet on the edge of the Knysna forest. Foresters,
woodcutters and miners would have considered themselves in paradise to have enjoyed such rural elegance and comfort.
We love your inspired creativity and appreciate all your work and the endless love which must have been devoted to making this place so
different and unique. I can imgine that young and old must feel equally thrilled by its ambiance."
- Ann Kench & Angela and Peter King, Somerset and England, November 2013

- Olwen and Tony Gibson, Cape Town, November 2013
"My grootste probleem was om hier weg te ry. Wat n fantastiese natuur wonder. Die plek is ongelooflik vir die natuur-liefhebber; n fantastiese natuur wonder. Die ideale plekkie
om te kom kop skoonmaak. Ek is verstom oor wat julle hier bymekaar gesit het, en so netjies!
My siel wil nie saam met my hier wegry nie. Sal hom maar weer moet kom soek."

I hope to return soon. What a wonderful, magical experience!"
- Minette Eloff, UK, October 2013
"Our stay in 'Fairy Den' was as charming as its name. Thanks for enabling us to catch up with our friends and god children in
such a spectacular setting. Seeing the fireflies come out of the forest at nightfall will be forever imprinted on my memory - it was magical.
Take care and wishing you a miracle of a day!"

"'It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of
air that emanates from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit' - Robert Louis Stevenson. Wens ons kon langer bly,
maar sal beslis weer kom kuier. Wonderlike plek om lafenis vir jou siel te kry. Kan dit met groot vrymoedigheid aanbeveel vir mense wat lief is vir die natuur."

"Thank you for a wonderfully relaxing stay at your magical home next to the forest. It transported me back to 35 years ago when I spent time at
Jubilee Creek with my extended family. I remember poking around in the creek with my late Grandpa. Nothing has changed! Our children Courtney (9) and Jarryd (6)
enjoyed a pleasant afternoon doing just the same thing! You have done wonders here; we live on a farm and know just how much has gone into what you
have created. Well done and thank you!"
- Jo, Courtney, Jarryd and Steve Nicholls, Kirkwood, September 2013

Ons wil ook vir jou erkenning gee vir die mate van jou toegewydheid tot die taak en bestuur. Als is pragtig mooi, beplan en uitgevoer

"Great location for a long weekend, very peaceful surroundings and excellent accommodation."
- Wikus Theunissen, Durbanville, September 2013
"A magical place where you can truly rest and find yourself. We had a fabulous time and a calming, restful long weekend. The cottage is all we expected and more.
This lovely, cosy woodcutter styled house is quaint and inviting.
We enjoyed the evenings, chatting by the fire playing cards. It was a reminder of how simple and satisfying life can be. The bath was a luxurious reminder
of a slower, quieter pace, while the shower was an invigorating lovely way to connect with nature. The books, dvd's and music are a lovely personal touch.
Living on the edge of the forest is very special. Dalene Matthee's books came alive for us in the 'Circles in the Forest' trail.
Beautiful lush foliage, tall proud trees and colourful loeries. What a special experience. Thank you for creating a truly magical environment. We definitely want to return."
- Elena Stradoudakis and Chris Rademeyer, Sandton/Pretoria, September 2013
"Woorde is ontoereikend. Jy is geseend om so n lushof te bedryf, en nog meer geseend in die manier wat julle het, om sonder
bohaai of inmenging, die magiese rykdom van Forest Edge en omgewing aan julle gaste oor te dra. Hierdie was gewis die groot juweel in die kroon
van ons laaste 40 jaar saam. Die gehalte, foutloosheid, hope inligting, saam met rojale geriewe spreek van eindelose ure, dae, maande en jare se arbeid
en nadruk op detail. Doen so voort en mag jy die vreugde en vrede wat jou toekom ervaar. In twee en n halwe dae is ons verlief op jou, jou rusplek en jou bos."
- Anne en Calie Blignaut, Tokai, September 2013
"Thank you for the warm welcome and for making our honeymoon special and memorable. Loved everything about the place:

we explored the small Rheenendal community and saw the wonders of it; Knysna and beauty of it; met many different people and everyone
made our journey memorable. Walking around Forest Edge we came across the prayer corner and knew we were in the right place.
Peace and quiet did the trick. 'High 5' to you and your staff - always the widest smile and helpful. One in a million; you made our stay perfect."

Vrede en vreugde vir Forest Edge en sy span."
- Loutjie en Bob Wolf, Barrydale, July 2013
"The best stay we had in South Africa. Very relaxing and beautiful accommodation. Our cabin was more than we could have dreamed for, spacious and cosy,
and I've never had a better shower than the ones I enjoyed outside under the stars. We took some lovely long walks through the forest itself
and got to appreciate the culture of the area as well (we LOVED Totties - wish we had a place like that where we're from!)
The highlight was seeing 5 Knysna Loeries together - the scarlet of their wings was heart-stoppingly aweing. Thanks Ronel, for the
wonderful initial briefing - essential information. The informational file was very interesting and informative, and added to the charm and
value of staying at Forest Edge."

(which by the way is super informative and very professionally put together). I could not have chosen a better place to
break away from the hustle and bustle of the city in order to celebrate my 50th birthday in peace and quiet,
and as close to nature as possible. There was nothing lacking. We will be back."
- Beverley and Gavin Best, Cape Town, June 2013

DO NOT HAVE SUCH DOUBTS ABOUT FOREST EDGE... It is breathtaking. Thank you so much for creating this lovely place. It is incredible,
a true home away from home. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and feel renewed energy after the week of relaxation.
Will definitely be returning."

- Johan en Linda Badenhorst, Somerset Wes, May 2013
"We had a brilliant stay, can't recommend it enough! Highlights were star-gazing (since we live in London now I have not seen so many stars since I was a child!),
getting to know the elephants, fireplace in the livingroom, eating breakfast on the veranda while listening to the sounds of the forest and of course the two friendly donkeys.
Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer and that we didn't get to see a baboon : ) We will definitely be coming back here again and we will be recommending
this place to all our nature-loving friends."

rejuvenate one's mind, body and spirit. The hammock is the best for an afternoon nap!"
- Chantel and Jerome Walker, Cape Town, May 2013

around the property. Much appreciated and enjoyed!"
- Pam and Michael McAfee, Port Elizabeth, May 2013
"Great place, well worth the visit. The house rules a bit overbearing."
- Etienne Slabbert, Parkview, JHB, May 2013
Management response: Yes, Etienne, I agree that House Rules sadly do sound a bit like school rules.
They are a standard feature of the hospitality scene and though completely unnecessary for 99% of our wonderful Forest Edge guests;
they evolved over time due to actual problems experienced. Really to protect our 'good' guests', we like to think they are FOR our guests rather than
TO our guests
-: when the 1% of unsuitable guests are having a rock concert next to your cottage, for example, you'll be glad there are rules we can enforce : -).
"We had the most wonderful stay in Fairy Den cottage and were most impressed by the attention to detail and absolute tidiness.
The outside shower was an absolute winner. Will definitely return ASAP!"
- Hedley Peter, Citrusdal, May 2013

waking up with a shower in the morning sun. You have been really friendly, welcoming and informative, and we cannot wait to come
back here again. Perfect : -)"

maak ons regtig spesiaal voel en dra by tot die heerlike kuier... 5 sterre sou ons se! "

"What a blessing to come back after 3 years! We were well entertained by variety of frogs, a powerful thunderstorm, a refreshing swim at Drupkelders,
and like always for Michael - feeding of the donkeys Hansel and Gretel! The educational path is such a wonderful addition and we can see that the
Forest Edge team pour out their hearts into making the place a very special destination."
- Delana Green, Somerset West, March 2013
"Geluk met wat jy hier vermag het, soos n vriendin sou se: "Jy sal die plek maklik kry; dis net n straat van die paradys af". Van die plek wat
ons in die 90's leer ken het is min oor: in die geval n totale verbetering! Die ambiance en vibe is NET reg. Hier is genoeg luukshede om n
gemaklike verblyf te verseker - maar ook genoeg karakter het behoue gebly. Wat n wonderlike plek om van ons besige, daaglikse roetine weg te breek.
Glo dit is nie elke dag maklik om almal tevrede te stel nie so: Welgedaan en baie dankie!"
- Francois en Rina Barnard, Hartenbos, March 2013

all loved the outdoor shower - individually, I mean : )"

braai and hear the froggy chorus at night. Thank you to you and your wonderful staff."
- Tamsin, John, Ava and Finn Daly, Limerick, Ireland, March 2013

We loved our cottage and the outside shower was amazing. We will always think fondly of this wonderful week where
we got to relax in the hammock, bravely swim in Drupkelders pools (brrr!) and utterly cast our concerns in to a corner
of our empty suitcases. Had a fantastic time. Would recommend it to anyone looking for some peace and quiet,
wonderful walks and lovely surroundings. I shall rave and avangelise about this place! "
- Susannah van Straaten, Caledon, February 2013

Combine this with state of the art solar power, water purification and organic vegetables and you have a winner! We will be back!"
- Lynette en Kobus Victor, Secunda, January 2013
"Ons het n ongelooflike 11 dae by julle gerus. Die kinders het die tuine en donkies baie geniet en ons het selfs tyd gehad om n paar boeke te lees
wat nie altyd gebeur op vakansie nie :-). Het al die details en geskiedenis ook baie geniet. Dankie vir jou ongelooflike gasvryheid en hulpvaardigheid.
Jou vriendelikheid was aansteeklik. Ons het ook die woud vreeslik baie geniet en sal definitief weer terug kom met ons fietse en stapskoene."

next leg of our trip : ) As the Terminator says: WE'LL BE BACK..

to read your terms and conditions while I am traveling."
- Name withheld by management, Pretoria, December 2012
Management response: Forest Edge is responsible for presenting its T&C's in clear wording, from
first contact throughout the booking process - which we do. Thereafter, it becomes the guests' responsibility to assess suitability.
We also offer, in writing, to help guests find alternative accommodation should these terms not suit them.

"I come to Forest Edge every year and will continue to do so indefinitely. It is a true retreat and gives me time
to get back to myself. A great breakaway for anyone who wants to re-attune with Nature.
Staff are great at balancing being around when you need them, and leaving you to your own devices.
All I would perhaps add is a second hammock at the cottage so that I don't have to race my bff for it : )"

Die bos is iets baie besonders, ons het die kringe in n bos staproete gedoen en dit is asemrowend. Was ook by die myn
en die restaurant se kos daar is heerlik. Dankie vir die gasvryheid - ons sal definitief mense verwys en ons sal weer kom!"

Baie dankie vir julle gasvryheid en vriendelikheid, die hulp en verwysings. Die huisie is great en baie prakties;
die kaggel is n wenner. Ek en my vroutjie het dit baie geniet."
- Honeymooners Anzel and Neville Meyer, Gauteng, July 2012
"The peacefulness makes you think about your own daily routine, why are you running?
Here you find yourself again, there is time, there is a small thing you never see - just look...
Alle verwagtinge oorskry, wat n verrassing, die verblyf in n huisie by die woud, die stilte en die atmosfeer.
Die mense se vriendelikheid laat mens wonder waar het die wereld hulle sin verloor,
miskien in die gejaag na wind. Ons het n bietjie van onsself teruggekry en weer mens geword. "
- Elrie de Bruyn en Edwin Leemans, Brits, June 2012
"This was overall and in every aspect a wonderful and invigorating experience. Very sad to leave and will be
putting energy and effort into a return visit. Every part of my being needed this. ..lie in the hammock for a few hours...
take the trail at the big tree, then visit the drift... take more time to relax and reflect on the beauty
of nature and the presence of the Creator in it."
- Honeymooners Madrinette and Andre Nel, Gordons bay, June 2012
"We had an awesome stay. Loved the vibe! Ideal location. Close to stuff to do but the quiet feeling of the woods.
Awesome walks around."

- Ma Jackie and Lorraine, Abigail, Malcolm Maclean, Bredasdorp / Trichardt, June 2012
"Met ons aankoms het al die liggies in ons huis gebrand - soos ogies wat vir ons gewag het/ons wil binne-nooi.
Of ogies wat wil sien: wie gaan die huisbewoners wees? Dis Winter in die Knysna bos, maar ons is gewapen teen die koue:
die kaggel, n bottel "soet" en my manlief! Vandag 27 jaar gelede is ons op Tulbagh in die Boland getroud.
Ons verken die werf en kom gou agter hies is alles in plek - so netjies. Ons drink koffie op die stoep en
ontvang n mandjie vol organiese groente en kruie. Dit laat ons voel soos eregaste! Geen alarm wat jou wakker maak in die oggend nie!
Die volgende oggen tok-tok iets aan ons kamervenster: meneer en mevrou Suikerbekkie. Asof hulle wil se staan op! Kom kyk!
My wederhelf en sy kamera werk oortyd! n By wat nektar soek met vladderende vlerkies, n spinnekop op n blaar, die weerkaatsing van die
kothuis op die dam... alles word op film vasgele. Sondag-oggend gewaar ons die Knysna Loerie in die bos reg voor ons.
Hy is skaam-skugter. Ons kon die naweek ons gemaksone vol roetine en stres agterlaat en by Forest Edge kom ontspan in
n sirkel "where the magic happens" - n MAKING MEMORY MOMENT gehad; n naweek wat ons nog lank gaan onthou.
Dankie vir die stukkie paradys wat julle hier met soveel sorg bewaar en dat
ons kon deel daarin."
- Christopher en Anne-Marie van Zyl, Knysna, June 2012
"An amazing experience for our honeymoon!!! Definitely a must-do to escape the busy, polluted city life.
We had the best time ever and the highlight was definitely the hike down to 'Drupkelders' rocky pools in the light drizzle.
The fireplace was a great luxury to have on chilly nights. We loved the peacefulness and tranquility of the surrounding forest
and wildlife. We hope to do this again in summer to witness the fireflies."
- Ayesha and Kashief Khan, Cape Town, June 2012
"Absolutely perfect - we had the best stay ever and will be back as soon as possible. You have thought of everything. X"

"What a magic place, we loved it!!"
- Tracey Bent, Oudtshoorn, June 2012
"Wow, die plekkie is absoluut stunning! Die wonderlikste vier dae ooit! Forest Edge is
die perfekte plek vir n honeymoon. Ons het die kaggel, buite stort en hammock vreeslik geniet.
Die stap tot by Mother Holly's was hemels - 26km done and dusted met die beste uitsigte en dierelewe.
Ons kom beslis weer terug vir ons eerste huweliksherdenking. Liefde,"
- Liana en Ricardo Brand, Cape Town, June 2012
"What a blissful hideaway! Unfortunately the rain kept us from doing the walks we wanted to do
but we still had a wonderful break. The beauty and tranquility is refreshing to the spirit.
Lovely to take time to admire all God has made. All that is needed, is thought of and supplied in the cottage...
ensuring a comfy stay."
- Shelley and Nick van Rensburg, Port Elizabeth, June 2012

"Uitstekend. Ons het die paar dae geniet en gerus al was dit nat en baie koud. Die kaggel!!
Dit is lekker om net weg te kom van al die winkels en werk! Forest Edge is n plek van rus.
Julle is vriendelik en behulpsaam, die plekkie is skoon en niks is verkeerd nie."
- Rosemarie de Wet, George, June 2012
"Lovely experience for all of us. We will definitely return next year. As was said before,
a three day stay is not long enough to enjoy all that Forest Edge has to offer. Our FOURTH return of college
students was (as always) wonderful!"
- Denise Meijer (programme coordinatoor), St. Benedict & St. John's Universtity, Minnesota, USA, May 2012
"Forest Edge was an absolutely breathtaking experience as we continued our tour of SA. Knysna will be

outdoor showers! It was refreshing to feel so close to nature."
- Natalie, Courtney & Alyssa, CSB/SJU, Minnesota, USA, May 2012
"Thank you for your personal touch and attention to detail. You made our honeymoon very special.

The hammock is a real treat. Hope to see you soon again."
- Zelda and Wayne Swarts, Cape Town, May 2012
"Forest Edge was die perfekte keuse vir n wittebrood. Die woud is pragtig en die tuin is net so mooi
met al die blommetjies. Die kaggel was baie baie romanties. Dankie vir al die gasvryheid en die moeite wat
vir ons gedoen was. Ons het baie welkom gevoel. Great diens. Ons kom verseker weer terug. Die twee weke was perfek
en die weer het mooi saam gespeel. "
- Kathy en Daniel van Schalkwyk, Vanderbijlpark, May 2012

- Ron and Barbara Barker, Cape Town, May 2012
"Its always so lovely here! Relaxing, quiet and beautiful. Coming here is a welcome break from the
craziness of the city. We actually had time to just sit and do nothing. Feeding Hansel and Gretel was
the highlight of Nicholas' day. Thanks for making us feel so welcome, lots of love."
- Multi-return visitors: Natalie, Nicholas and Riaan Klopper, Gauteng, May 2012
"This was the perfect place for a honeymoon. So tranquil and quiet. The perfect place to recharge. The 'Kringe in n bos' walk was
amazing and 'Drupkelders' is breathtaking - once you get down that last steep bit : ) The cabin is so well equipped, it felt like I was home.
Everything you could possibly need is in there. We enjoyed Knysna, the Heads and also Noetzie beach. Thank you for being part of our special time,
you made our memories even more precious."
- Felicia and Riaan Smit, Durban, May 2012
"Friendly experience from start to finish. Nature truly embraces you upon arrival. Forest Edge is the second stop on our honeymoon.
We have loved every minute of our stay here. It feels like home. Coming back from daily activities to a squeeky clean cabin has been a
cherry on top. We loved experiencing the animal sounds during day and night. Thank you!"
- Jami and Oliver Kriel, Cape Town, May 2012
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, just too short (5 nights). We are definitely coming back for a longer stay.
It is peaceful and scenic, just what we needed. Wish our lifestyle could be like this permanently.
Staff friendly and efficient. The cottages are amazing. I just love the old Victorian architecture, quite unique."
- Nadene and Robert du Brey, Port Elizabeth, May 2012
"Many thanks for a wonderful 4 days of peace and relaxation for 2 city slickers from Johannesburg.
We recommend all the walks but especially the 'Drupkelders' one which is good for the soul and old muscles.
Also, turn right at the Rheenendal road to take the old road to George through some wonderful valleys and forests.
Ronel's passion about Forest Edge and all the details surrounding it, shines through in the quality of
the cottages and service. A wonderful, peaceful, tranquil, relaxing place."
- Trisha and Russell Gill, Johannesburg, May 2012
"I decided to bring my girlfriend here as a surprise. Definitely value for money. Beautiful surroundings, very peaceful,
loved our walk around the property, the forest and the creatures we saw.
Great to get away from our stressful lives. Felt like we were at home. and I organised in-house massages for us which were amazing.
We came back relaxed. Thank you for allowing us to stay at this amazing place!"

- Madelie von Ludwig and Dr Chris Holland, Bryanston, May 2012
"We had a wonderful stay. We enjoyed every minute of our long weekend at Forest Edge. We noticed the care to detail and your obvious
love for what you do here and the peace you have next to the forest. I managed to read 'Circles in the Forest'
which was way overdue, and so Forest Edge will always be a significant place for me. We will plan our return -
hopefully a longer break."

Incredibly 'green' so impressive, such a different outlook on life. Nature is truly breathtaking,
would love to be in this environment constantly... what a life you have! The crackling fire was so romantic,
it soothed our soul. Such a comfortable bath and the cottage was SO clean - well done."
- Suzanne and Ockie Herbst, Johannesburg, April 2012
"Brilliant. We had a wonderful stay... close enough to all the activities on the Garden Route but
you really feel like you are in the bush with everything you need."
- Cindy Holmes, Muizenberg, April 2012
"Highly recommended holiday getaway. So romanties; n Onvergeetlike tyd; hierdie plek is ons gunsteling.
Vriendelik, hulpvaardig en positief. Baie gerieflik; alles was daar wat daar nodig was. Top kondisie;
elke dag se skoonmaak was fantasties. Goeie waarde; die beste wegkom plek ooit."
- Theo en Marietjie Truter, Gauteng, April 2012
"Had a great stay... will definitely come back again!"
- Anneline Rentzke de Bruyn, Vredendal, April 2012
"I cannot remember when last I had such a relaxing, peaceful time, in such a beautiful place! This is truly a stunning place.
If you love being close to nature, this place is perfect!! The cottage is small but cosy and very neat, you do not need more.
The kids had the time of their lives, with the safety to explore on their own and feeding the donkeys and making friends. It was
refreshing to go to a place that is not so commercialised and the owner is clearly passionate about what she does.
Can't wait to go back!!"

it is wonderful to use the outdoor shower, see the bounty of the stars and hear the sounds of the wild.
It's perfect just the way it is. We could not have chosen a better spot to stay at on our Garden Route trip.
We had a wonderful time at your glorious establishment. Everything is so beautiful and the attention to detail is great.
PS. We love that everything you do is done in an environmentally friendly manner!"
- Lynne Eastes, Cape Town, April 2012
"Three days is not enough time! We loved everything about Forest Edge, and will treasure our memories
of braaing under the stars in the clear night sky, reading while listening to the sounds of birds and bees,
relaxing in the hammock watching the light rain drizzling and cosying up to the fireplace, taking long walks,
etc, etc... This was the perfect getaway into nature and we cannot wait to come back. Thank you for all the extra
special touches you've thought of to make this a truly unforgettable experience.
Truly the most beautiful, tranquil setting in the middle of nautre and we couldn't have asked for a better place
to spend our anniversary."
- Melanie Chisnall, Somerset West, April 2012

to relax and revitalize the soul..."

"Loved our stay; it's been really special and we were immediately charmed by Forest Edge,
arriving in the dark to hear the noise of frogs and waking up next morning to discover what a special
place this is. The night sky and stars are amazing. Having breafast on the veranda every morning and
a barbeque every evening has felt like a real luxury. The swim in the pools at Drupkelders was amazing.
Thank you for a lovely stay; we would happily have stayed much longer."
- Nicola Turner, Simon and Lewis Marvin, Manchester, England, April 2012
"A relaxing and inspiring stay. The location and garden have been put together really well.
All Ronel's recommendations
were excellent and highlights for us included Drupkelders pools, a whale at Buffel's Beach, a visit to the
Elephant Park and lunch at East Head Cafe. Back at Forest Edge we thoroughly enjoyed BBQs on the veranda,
an evening around the fire and a very interesting and inspiring tour of the sustainable energy / water system.
Congratulations on having created a unique and special place!"
- Rosemary, Andy and Sarah Carr, England, April 2012
"Feeds my soul."
- Ruth Knight, Boksburg, April 2012

as well. Thank you for sharing this piece of heaven with us!"

away from our busy lives."

Just marvelous and a great experience. Jou plekkie is uniek en baie spesiaal!"
- Dawid Stroebel, Kimberley, March 2012
"Ons was oor die 6 jaar terug vir die eerste keer hier - praat van n transformasie! Die regering kan gerus by jou kom leer. Dit moes
baie bloedsweet gekos het om die plek vanaf n oorbegroeide bos/gras oord in n paradysie te kon omspek, ten spyte van teenstand. Geen wonder julle het soveel AA-pryse ontvang nie.
Hier kan n mens waarlik sy siel voed. PS. die vuurvliegies was n bonus!"
- Jurie & Rita Pieterse, Roodepoort, March 2012
"Very well equipped cottages in a very tranquil environment. We feel very rested after a few days at this peaceful place."
- Sue and Keith Barton, Cape Town, March 2012

We had an awesome 5 days. The outside shower is an absolute must as well as lazing in the hammock. Well done Ronel and team.
We will definitely be back and will recommend this place to all."

natuur en stilte so te kan ervaar. Amazing of vir die eerste keer in n lang tyd die sterre weer te sien. Dankie vir jou vriendelikheid,
gasvryheid en warm persoonlikheid. Ons is baie hartseer om te gaan; hierdie plekkie sal ons altyd in ons harte koester, want dis ons

the love of nature is truly life changing. The guys from Forest Edge made our honeymoon extra special. You are AMAZING!!!
You are the friendliest bunch of people, which made settling in fun and relaxing. The walk to Drupkelders was awesome
but tiring. Featherbed boat company was great; horseback riding with Chesna is highly recommended. We also enjoyed a
peaceful day enjoying the cottage and scenery and Isabella's massage was just what we needed. Thanks for keeping
Forest Edge in top condition. Keep up the good hard work. MWAH!"
- Sumaya and Grant Booysen, March 2012
"Dit was wonderlik om van die gejaag van die stad lewe weg te breek en rustig te raak. Die nag geluide en
natuur is wonderlik hier in die bos."
- Veroni en Linda Kruger, Witbank, March 2012
"Best place! Had the time of my Odyssey. It's really great here and I will be returning (James Sefers). It's beautiful,
my first impression is 'wow', they should really give you another star ey... (Melissa). What an amazing place this is!
It is so peaceful it is crazy : ) very lucky to have gotten the chance to stay here! I'll be back (Dayna Katz).
This place has been fantastic, had such a jol staying here! Its a beautiful place. Definitely coming back sometime soon (Simone Meyer).
Thank you so much for all the effort you put in to make our stay as wonderful as it was. We are really grateful. This is a beautiful
place, really glad we came here (Group 3, Odyssey). Dit was amazing. Dit is baie mooi hier en ek het dit baie geniet. Ek dink
die hele Odyssey het dit geniet. Dankie vir als en jou vriendelike glimlag (Carla).

wish we could have stayed longer. Highly recommended!"
- Aaron Armstrong, USA, February 2012
"You cannot put into words the relaxed feeling after only a few hours, something mystical about the trees swaying in front of
your cottage. The hammock and outdoor shower are a must. Wat n wonderlike geleentheid om so na aan die woud te bly, so rustig, kon so lekker slaap.
Doodstil, die huisie so anders en gerieflik. Alle eer aan onse Hemelse Vader."
- Charmaine and Llewellyn Rothmann, Cape Town, February 2012
"n Ongelooflike ervaring; sal dit nooit vergeet nie en sal definitief weer kom kuier!"
- Hanli Schoeman, February 2012
"The service we received was excellent. From having to have urgent faxes sent, which was organised efficiently, to receiving delicious fresh vegetables from the garden.
I am also so impressed with the eco friendly life style of the resort. The Drupkelders trail to beautiful swimming rock pools are a must."
- Arlene Bertscher, Cape Town, February 2012
"Thank you for an extraordinary experience, you will definitely see us again and we will gladly recommend Forest Edge. Our only regret is
that our stay was too short."
- Venessa and Fred Pike, East London, February 2012
"A big Thank You to Ronel and her team for making our first anniversary one to remember. Looking forward to many more returns; 3 nights
is no where near enough time to enjoy all that Forest Edge and its surroundings have to offer."
- Debz Hanker and Adrian Pike, February 2012
"What a great experience. This is a must for every nature lover. Will definitely recommend this establishment to all.
Wat n ongelooflike ervaring! Dit het meer as my verwagtinge oortref. n Stukkie juweel met jou en jou span as die perels. Die persoonlike verwelkoming,
jou moeite en afronding en die organiese groente-bakkie is soooooo spesiaal. My hoogtepunt was die buitelug stort en die hangmat.
En natuurlik die gebedstuin - jy beleef Sy teenwoordigheid. Die hele week hier het net weer vir my betekenis gegee aan "Hy verkwik my siel".
Ons gaan verkwik, uitgerus en met nuwe lewenslus hier weg. Maar ons kom weer!!"
- Leane and Johnny Weel, Rustenburg, February 2012

"An excellent place for a peaceful stay and quality, intimate times with loved ones. The ambiance is lovely."
- Kanelani Mavundza, JHB, February 2012
"Just wonderful. As you can see (below), our daughter Georgie had a wonderful time. And so did we. We all enjoyed the story of 'Milky Mouse'
on our last night by the fire. The cottage was exactly as expected: cosy, warm and everything worked well. We have absolutely no
complaints at all. Here are our favourite things and tips: Drupkelders walk - STUNNING! Buffels Bay - superb beach.
Knysna: View from 'The Heads' very special but waterfront a bit touristy for us. Best meal at Cruise Cafe. Natures Valley near Plett for
amazing lagoon for swimming. But the BEST is just being at Forest Edge and enjoying the forest walks and the surrounds. At about 06:15
we saw a Bushbuck and lamb grazing outside the cottage. And do read 'Circles in the Forest' if you have not already. A wonderful 5 days.
Thanks Ronel and team (that kept everything clean and running perfectly), you have created a real Eden here and it suited us perfectly!"
- Steve and Kate Cliff, Hampshire, UK, February 2012
"Excellent value for money, wonderful ambiance, an unforgettable experience. Recommended for any nature lover looking for a retreat
away from it all in the mystical Knysna forest. Jou ontvangs en oorsig was uniek. Dit was lekker om in n skoon plek te kon bly. Die huisies is heel iets anders as
wat ons aan gewoond is. Die stilte, kalmte en rus was goed vir die siel."
- Gysbert Potgieter, Mpumalanga, February 2012
"Best romantic getaway."
- Lizelle le Roux, February 2012
"Great break for the family. A perfect getaway for all of us. We had a lovely time and would definitely come here again."
- Benjamin Scales, Jeffreys Bay, February 2012
"What a little peace of heaven, for the whole family. We really had a blast! n Klein stukkie paradys, dis wat julle het.
Dankie vir jou vriendelikheid, hulvaardigheid en gasvryheid. Dit maak ons hartseer om te dink ons moet hierdie idiliese plekkie
in die hartjie van die bos verlaat, en ons terugkeer na ons realiteit van gejaag en stadslewe. Alhoewel Mardeonne (2) so effens skrikkerig
was vir die pragtige donkeis, kon sy nie uitgepraat raak oor hulle nie. Sy het dit vreeslik geniet om daagliks vir hulle hul lekkernye te gee.
Bly so n warmhartige mens; jy het ook n wonderlike span."
- Deon, Mariet, Mardeonne van Zyl, Gauteng, February 2012
"Soms in jou lewe kom jy by n verposing in jou lewe wat jou weer die mooi in die lewe laat ontdek. Ons het hierdie drie dae by n
verposing in ons lewe gekom. Baie dankie vir wat jy hier vermag. Mag God jou seen met al jou projekte. Ons het dit geniet."
- Peet en Sonia Muller, Centurion, February 2012

to peace, tranquility, stillness and nature."
- Marc Coetzer, Roodepoort, February 2012

- Chris Veldsman, February 2012
"This was the most wonderful way to end our honeymoon. The beauty and tranquility of nature pierces through
body and soul and leaves one with a longing for more. A totally relaxing experience where a lot of effort is placed in the
comfort of guests and ensuring they have the best experience possible. We definitely want to come back for a longer period and
will recommend it to all; I can now understand the awards given to you!! You deserve each and every one!"
- Jessica and Marco van der Linde, Thabazimbi, February 2012
"A wonderful magical stay. The attention to details was absolutely phenomenal. The setting was exactly what we needed to
rest and restore our souls. We definitely recommend the Drupkelders walk. The climb is a bit steep but it was so worth it.
We spent a lovely evening in front of the fire watching dvd's - nice touch. Loved Hansel and Gretel! The self-guided tour and information
boards really transported us to a different time."
- Brett and Sanet Dietrechsen, Kempton Park, February 2012
"Forest Edge is an amazing place to relax and experience total peace. We loved the close proximity to nature,
which afforded us the opportunity to switch off completely and enjoy our honeymoon."
- Dr Mao Amis, Cape Town, February 2012
"Such a beautiful little cottage. This was really an awesome stay for our honeymoon. A very different experience and
will surely recommend Forest Edge to friends and family. It is a pity we did not get to see the wildlife, but we heard them at night."
- Daven and Zenobia Govender, Sandton, February 2012
"Really exceptional place to stay. Extremely child friendly, great if you really want to be close to nature.
Highly recommended. Awesome time with the whole family. Cottages were excellent and the whole package is child friendly.
The bonfire was great, Drupkelders was very nice as was Jubilee Creek and the walk to the waterfall. If only the dirt road leading up to the
nature reserve could be fixed up..."
- Francois de Wet, Somerset West, February 2012
"Thank you for an amazing weekend. It was just what we needed. Also great to have the massage and yoga at the cottage thanks to
Jean and Dwaro. So much to do here at Forest Edge we had to stay a day longer!"
- Caron Atkins, February 2012
"It was really a blessing to have spent our honeymoon at Forest Edge. We definitely got the rest and peace we needed
after two months of intense schedules and organisation of our wedding. The cottage and its surroundings are beautiful.
We were really impressed by the excellent service and the small things, e.g. tooth picks, fans, hairdryer, info booklets
and the decent selection of DVDs. Overall experience Much better than expected."
- Jodi and Ewin de Villiers, Cape Town, February 2012

Thoroughly enjoyed my time here with my 2 small ones (3 and 1 years old)."
- Samantha Bartram, January 2012

in lovely, peaceful and safe surroundings. Keep it up, Ronel and your staff! Very hard to beat this act!"
- Dr Manya Mooya, Cape Town, January 2012
"This has been the perfect getaway for us. We have relaxed and recharged our batteries which was the purpose of the visit.
The kids have adored it - Hansel and Gretel have been keeping them amused and they would like to live here at Forest Edge
and visit home for holidays! The hammock is now a 'must' at home.
Thank you for your kind hospitality. We very much look forward to visiting again."
- Catriona Kent, Knysna, January 2012

Ons is bly ons kon hierdie jaar so rustig begin. Dis pragtig en stil. Baie geluk met die uitbreidings en nuwighede -
en dit alles net vir ons."
- Tiekie van Huyssteen, Cape Town, January 2012
"A must see for nature lovers. Its the first time for us to visit the forest, and I must say we are loving the environment, tranquility,
the hammock is wonderful, the cottage is beautiful. Picnic at Jubilee Creek was awesome. We had visits from the baboon family.
Our trip to Drupkelders was steep but worth it all when we reached the rock pools."
- Mbulelo Ngwenya, Johannesburg, January 2012
"We got the holiday we wanted. Away from the crowds but still close enough to everything. We now feel relaxed and ready to face
the new year. Our daughter Erein loved it here, especially outside. There was everything you could require and more.
We would have liked a bigger bed (than a double). We'll be back and will recommend you to all.
So glad we came."
- Nicole, Erik and Erein Rasmussen, Cape Town, January 2012

"Baie goed toegerus, perfek ingerig, al die klein detail, kan definitied sien Ronel hou haar hand op alles. Die huisie is pynlik netjies en
alles wat jy benodig is beskikbaar. Die buite-stort is wonderlik en vreeslik verfrissend. Jy en jou span het beslis n wen-resep!
Definitief n 'moet weer kom kuier'. "
- Alicia Nysschen, Uitenhage, January 2012

"If you have not been here, you are missing the best secret in life! Little 'heaven on earth'."
- Betsie Gauche, Hermanus, January 2012
"MORE to Knysna than the lagoon and beaches... experience the Forest at Forest Edge. Friendly, hospitable, tranquil
(not hearing traffic was a great plus), very impressed with the new veggie patch - recommend Forest Edge as EXCELLENT.
Thank you very much for a wonderful stay and experience. Been to Knysna NINE times and never experienced a forest stay.
This was totally magical and relaxing. Jubilee Creek was amazing as well as the hikes. We like the way you operate
Forest Edge by conserving the area and being self-sufficient. We would like to keep this place a secret, but have to
brag about it to our family and friends. See you soon. Namaste."
- Umesh, Jayshree and Diyali Lakha, Johannesburg, January 2012
"Baie dankie aan almal wat so hard gewerk het om seker te maak dat ons tydtjie hier by Forest Edge fantasties was.
Ons het so lekker gebly en definitief ontspan (die hammock het baie gehelp daarmee). Fairy Den is n pragtige huisie en
die naam is definitief gepas, ons het op die wind stil aande die feetjies met hul lantertjies in die woud gesien.
Die vakansie was vir ons nuwe gesinnetjie regtig spesiaal."
- Jan, Jannie en Celente van Vreden, Meyerton, January 2012
"Thanks for making our holiday so enjoyable. From the chocolates on the bed to the bottle of champagne on New Years,
everything has been a wonderful surprise! Loved the tranquility and the beautiful surroundings, its been a wonderful experience.
We'll definitely be back!"
- The Dormann's, Van der Bijl Park & Robson's Perth, Australia, January 2012
